I had the chance to buy a long barrel 9"? With adj sights for just over 100 but I didn't have the cash at the moment, the next day the guy had already gotten rid of it. They pop up all the time around here for 100-125 used.

Gen Pat is using hyperbole very well!

All I recommended here is what I know and have heard from sources I trust. I don't trust Pat, consider his advice based on dodgy intel/logic.

But buy what you feel comfortable with, that's all I can advise and what I do myself. I'm very comfortable with almost any 22 as a plinker. Which is what I interpreted this to be.

I am just as biased as Pat, however I'm against overpricing and misinforming snobbery. To each their own man. I will say most here would disagree with me and agree with Pat. That's something to keep in mind. Sheeple come in all forms, not just anti gunners...

You must be like 22. Only someone of youth would use such ignorance in a part of life where bad decisions can cost someone body parts, if not their life. Yes, there are overpriced guns on the market, and many of them. Not one of the three I named are overpriced. The reason most here disagree with you is because you are buying things that are proven dangerous. To top that off you are trying to use parts not designed for them in the hopes of getting them to perform beyond their capabilities. It's dangerous, and just plain ignorant.

Also, just as small lesson in Language arts, a hyperbole is an exaggeration to create emphasis or effect. I didn't exaggerate on anything I said. It's public knowledge and available anywhere with a simple search. Or perhaps you can explain how Bryco Arms came to be, bankrupted and was reanimated over the years with different brand names. Perhaps you could get some of the disabled people who've been "accidentally" shot by those weapons to chime in.
The reason I know all this, and the reason I am tryin to educate those who even contemplate such a purchase, is because I've owned a couple of those worthless turds. In my inexperience when I first turned 21 I bought 2 of them, the lorcin and Jennings. Two giant wastes of money. Undependable, unpredictable, and can't shoot a decent group over 3 feet. I made the mistake because there wasn't anyone around to educate me otherwise. Now if I can save a few people all those issues, I will make a Dam fine effort to do so. Had I known all the things I have posted here, I would surely have passed on both of them. The only people I can even imagine tryin to sell those to others would be 1) people who will be shooting at those people, knowing they would have the tactical advantage 2) someone who works for the company selling that crap 3) someone who needs a throw down to go kill someone, who hopes the slide doesn't explode in their hand. That's' it. Those guns are good for nothing else, except maybe paperweights but their even to ugly for that.

Bryco-The first incarnation of the pot metal pistol

Lorcin-Same gun different name

Oh and, let us cite the ATF

BRYCO ARMS
Model Jennings Nine, (including the JA_NINE by Jimenez)
9mm LUGER caliber Semiautomatic Pistol

WARNING: These pistols may create an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CONDITION and a POTENTIAL FOR SERIOUS INJURY by firing without pulling the trigger.

During the testing of a Bryco Arms, Jennings Nine pistol by a forensic firearms examiner it was noted that it would fire upon release of the thumb safety and spontaneously fire in a FULL AUTO MODE on an inconsistent bases. When loaded with the manual thumb safety in the “safe” position, if the trigger of the submitted firearm has been pulled stiffly a few times, the firearm will discharge when the thumb safety is moved to the “fire” position.

Disassembly of the pistol revealed some wear/damage to the sear which allows slight downward movement when the trigger is pulled. It appears due to the wear/damage the sear/striker engagement is reduced allowing the striker to override the sear after the thumb safety is released.

MANUALLY UNLOADING THIS PISTOL MAY BE VERY DANGEROUS SINCE IT COULD DISCHARGE DURING THIS PROCEDURE.

Source:

AFTE Journal, Spring 2001

The facts speak well enough for themselves. I don't care for Hi Point either, but I'd say buy a Hi Point before anything designed by Bryco. At least it won't explode in your hand

I have a couple of the Heritage Rough Riders with 61/2 barrels. They are fun to shoot and accurate. I'm a big fan of fixed sights, so once the gun teaches you where it wants to shoot, you'll be good to go. good luck

Anyone know if these guns are any good I've shot a couple .25 autos by phoenix but not any of there .22's
That's one of my original suggestions and the one I most recommend. You can order it with an additional 5"target barrel which makes it the best of both worlds!

Keep in mind the old Italian proverb:

"Cheapa U buy, cheapa U get."

And yes, Jennings, Bryco, Phoenix etc are junk. Sorry, but that's the truth.

+1 on the Ruger 22/45. Might be a lil heavy for Mom but worth handling to see.
